Healthy Poached Eggs.

One of the best pieces of advice that I’ve ever received about a healthy diet was given to me by my husband’s nutritionist.

She told me to reduce the intake of eggs into our weekly diet (max 3 per week), especially if you have a high cholesterol or high blood pressure, and also mentioned, that the healthiest way to eat an egg is boiled.

The following recipe is easy to cook and combines a healthy ingredient; apple cider vinegar.

Some benefits of using this type of vinegar are that it helps lower blood sugar levels as well as cholesterol and improve symptoms of diabetes.

HEALTHY POACHED EGGS – Especially for people with High Blood Pressure.

You need for one portion: 1 egg, 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 1/2 ripe avocado, 1 slice of bread, a bunch of spinach leaves and a pinch of chopped chili pepper.

Bring a deep pan with water to the boil and add the apple cider vinegar. Break the egg into 1 separate cup.

Swirl the vinegared water briskly to form a vortex and slide in an egg. It will curl around and set to a neat round shape.

Cook for 2 minutes, then remove the egg gently with a spoon and use a cloth to absorb the excess of water.

In the meanwhile, take a flat griddle pan and toast the bread until is nice and brown.

Serve the toast on a plate and spread the ripe avocado, place the egg on top and sprinkle the spinach leaves and the chili pepper.

Making the perfect poached egg needs practice, so don’t get disappointed if it does not look perfect the first time.
